“Shoot” starts out with a creative emergency broadcast warning of a Nuclear Missile Launch. Behind the alert is a great buildup in the background. Together those two elements set the tone properly for the onslaught that occurs when guitarist Michael Tindall busts in with his grungy, muddy guitars. Played in a bouncy, edgy, and groovy pattern, the pace of the song is appealing. Spattered throughout the release you’ll hear underlying tracks of sirens, emergency vocals, and chaos…which are effective and aid in the fullness.
Portland, Oregon’s own Break the Maker’s single, “Shoot,” is a nice groove-driven song with well-sung and interesting vocals. Musically, it’s fat and full. Vocally, David D. Gray's vocals are smart and done right. Providing the backbone are Cameron Plesa on bass, and Bryan Ehrenfeld on drums. The duo do a great job laying down the foundation and keeping it there.
From start to finish, all elements of this song are well thought out and impressive. From the song’s structure to the disaster-laden undertone, the song begs to be listened to multiple times. Break the Maker has made a solid, timeless metal song in “Shoot.” Currently recording with producer Pooya Entezari at Perfect Audio, I’m really excited to hear the full release.
